    Great Season Cyclones!!

    Thought we needed a positive thread on here. This team absolutely played their ***** off today. 2 Big plays went WVU way, and that was the game.

    It has been a great season. Paul Rhoads continues to be great. Thanks Seniors, I can't remember a better senior class I liked watching more.

    I have some concerns for next year, but will save those for another thread.

    Lets get a win in the bowl game!!!!

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    I think your definition of great and my definition of great are vastly different.

    I see this season as a season of missed opportunities.

    Yeah I wouldn't use the word "Great" either. Possibly "Good"

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    Lots of missed opportunities, but I think given that we hit the bottom with 6 wins so I hope that's the worst we can expect going forward and will take some of those opportunities to move on up.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    We were okay this season. I had my expectations set at 7 wins.

    It seemed like the D carried the team most of the year...then Knott gets injured and they can't do it any longer. It seems like a shame that Sam wasn't ready earlier - if he played like the last 2 games and was in all year....could have been a lot of fun.

    Hope the younger guys step up next year. We may have an offence that can move the ball and may finally get above 6, 7, 8 wins?

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    West Virginia won fair and square and was the better team today. I am pleased with the season so far. Doesn't mean I enjoy an average record. But a win against Iowa, being bowl eligible, and seeing a bright future with Rhoads and our young guys is all good. Looking forward to the bowl game and I'll be there if in Texas.

    Give us a full season of Sam and improvement of talent all around as CPR recruits continue to progress. Looking forward to the future of this football team.

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    We were picked to compete with Kansas for the bottom with 3 wins. It was a great season. If it weren't for some of the fans that have a cloud following them around, like Halkeye fans, it would have been a lot more fun! **** some of you who question every loss like it was a failure! It was a great season! I'm saddened at the loss, and how we lost. But it's been a fun season. Go Cyclones! See you at the bowl!


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    We have been competitive in every game this year except maybe UT. Rhoads continues to put us in position to win games. I know some of you expect to increase the win total each year. I guess I am more realistic. Being competitive week-in/week-out against the top of the conference is a big step. This team has been very enjoyable to watch. Without the injury bug this year, I think we get 7 or maybe 8 wins. But it is what it is, and these guys left it all on the field.

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    We still have yet to move up in the Big 12. We have won 3 games in the conference every year under Rhoads. I wish some people would stop being so satisfied with mediocrity. I'm not calling this a bad season by any means, but it has be far from a "great" one. Plenty of opportunities have been missed this year.

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    I think the big difference comes from a generation gap. The older fans are happy and content with 6 wins because they remember the really bad times.

    The younger fans want to see us improve because all we have seen is us hover around 6 wins since the Dan Mac years.

    Consistent success will breed higher expectations, and that is where ISU is as a program. The next step is breaking through that wall.

    It was not a great season, nor was it a good one. It was acceptable. Continue building.

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    This was NOT a great season. Enough with these low expectations surrounding the program. 6-6 just isn't cutting it. Why can't we want a winning record in the big 12? If this season was "great" for you......I don't even know what to say.

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    honestly, we lost a couple of bad games this year, but we were in every one of them until late in the game. We went from knowing we were going to get beat by Texas, OU, Kstate, to actually thinking we had a shot to beat them. In the end, we played pretty well with everyone this year. Yeah, looking back it's a disappointment, but it would be tough for anyone on here, after the Pinstripe bowl, to justify that they really expected 7 wins from this team. It may not be the best bowl on the planet, but getting to a bowl gives the team an extra month of practice, that means a lot.

    Re: Great Season Cyclones!!

    The program is in a much better place, but that shouldn't be confused with a great season.
